People will look at the draft value chart and say we cheated ourselves, but the value of the pick is all about the talent available in the draft. Trading back 5 spots (from a spot you already don't want to be in) and grabbing an extra 2nd this year and a 2nd next year is a huge win for me. I could care less what the "value" chart says about it.
If the #1 pick in the NFL draft is only worth two 2nd RD picks, odds are that no team will be wanting to trade up to #1.
